Fujifilm X-H2S Firmware Update Ver.3.00

Revised specification from Ver.2.10 to Ver.3.00

  1. Subject detection enhancement by AI (Artificial Intelligence).
    (1)Current subject detection function improvement
    Subject detection performance has been greatly improved in situations that were difficult to detect with the current firmware, such as “backlighting”, “looking sideways”, and “small subjects”. The subject detection function can be used more than ever, regardless of the scene.
    (2)New subject category added
    “Insect” and “Drone” detection is newly realized In addition to the existing “Face”, “Eyes”, “Animal”, “Bird”, “Automobile”, Motorcycle & Bike”, “Airplane” and “Train”. Insects can be detected by setting the subject as “Bird” and drones can be done by setting it as “Airplane”.
  2. Dynamic tracking performance enhancement by the improved AF algorithm.
    (1)The motion prediction algorithm has been improved to enable stable tracking of subjects moving at high speed in the frame.
    (2)The AF focusing speed has been improved when continuous shooting is started by simultaneously pressing the AF-ON button and the release button while the camera is out of focus. The AF starts to focus at a faster rate than before, even in situations where the situation changes moment by moment, such as in sports. This makes it difficult to miss a shutter release opportunity, even in situations such as sports where the situation changes from moment to moment.
  3. Tripod grip, “TG-BT1” has been available.
    When the camera and “TG-BT1” are connected via Bluetooth, you can shoot still images and movies while holding the grip, as well as zoom in on lenses (*1) with an electric zoom function.
